Junior, Hannah Engebretson, earned national recognition for an outstanding performance on the 2018 National Spanish Examinations. She was awarded a bronze medal and is now able to apply for a scholarship of up to $2,000.

“Attaining a medal or honorable mention for any student on the National Spanish Examinations is very prestigious,” said Kevin Cessna-Buscemi, National Director of the Exams. “Because the exams are the largest of their kind in the United States with over 150,000 students participating in 2018.”

The National Spanish Examinations are given each year to sixth through 12th graders and are sponsored by the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese.

“Students from Timber Creek School have a long history of high achievement on Advance Placement (AP) Exams,” explained teacher Teresa Williams via email. “The Spanish teachers are happy and excited to see Hannah perform so well on another standard of measurement.”
